Aaron is a Registered Physiotherapist who received his Master’s Degree in Physiotherapy at the University of Ottawa after completing his Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Health and Education at Laurentian University in Sudbury. He also earned his Personal Trainer designation through the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology.
Aaron’s background in both human movement and personal training allowed him to pursue a student trainer role with the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League during his time at Laurentian University. As part of this experience, Aaron assisted with the implementation of strength and conditioning routines, and performed fitness testing for elite level athletes. Being with the team every day allowed Aaron to treat, manage and prevent various injuries, as well as prepare the players for game time.
As a Physiotherapist, Aaron uses a combination of patient education, manual therapy and exercise prescription as the foundations to his evidence based practice. Although hockey is one of Aaron’s strong interests, he is very passionate about the career he has chosen and as a result, takes pride in helping athletes of all sports, levels and ages.
Aaron has continued his education by taking post-graduate courses including Functional Dry Needling, Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Mackenzie Part A, the Mulligan Concept: Upper Quadrant, Certified Sports First Responder and is working his way through his Manual Therapy Levels.
Aaron is a bilingual therapist who is happy to provide services in both English and French.
